Frequently Asked Questions:
Who can take summer school?
- Students who are credit-deficient (are behind on credits) may attend summer school. Students must have already taken a course and received a "D" or "F" to qualify.
- Students who are currently enrolled in AVID and need to take a course due to an impacted schedule (see your AVID Coordinator).
- Students who are on a CTE (Career Technical Education) pathway and need to take a course due to an impacted schedule (see the CTE Department Chair).
- Students who are actively participating with ASB and need to take a course due to an impacted schedule (see your counselor).
How do I drop from summer school? Please notify your counselor immediately so we can offer your seat to another student. Should you fail to notify your counselor, you will be dropped by the 2nd day of summer school without anything posted on your transcript.
What if I change my mind and want to change the course I'm signed up for? Please notify your counselor immediately so we can see if there is availability in the course you prefer.
What if I lose my summer school schedule? Obtain a new schedule from your counselor. Copies will also be available on the first day of summer school.
What if I didn't receive a form, but I want to take summer school? Go see your counselor to try to reserve a seat for you.
What if a student just shows up on the 1st day without signing up first? Students may still have a small opportunity to take a class by waiting on standby. Although it is not guaranteed that students get the class they need, students may show up on the first day of school to see if there are any no-shows that day by students who were originally scheduled to take that class. If there is room in a course, students can be added by a counselor at the end of the school day.
Does taking summer school course replace the grade on the transcript if a student retakes a course? No. Both the original course that was taken and the new summer school course will be placed on the transcript, which means both grades are averaged into the GPA. Colleges and universities, however, do look over the entire transcript and will see that you attempted to take the course again, which looks favorably on the student.
Do I have to attend both sessions? No. Only attend the session you need (or when the course you need is offered).
Can I take a regular class and an online class?
Yes, we will ensure that the classes do not overlap. Refer to the Bell Schedule
to see the unique schedule for online classes.
